Captain America uses his Shield as a primary defensive and offensive piece of equipment for battle.
1970s TV Movies
In the 1970s Captain America TV movies, Steve Rogers was given a transparent Plexiglas shield painted with concentric stripes (red and clear transparent) and a central star. The shield was designed to act as the windscreen for his motorcycle, but could be detached and used in its traditional offensive/defensive role when Steve goes on foot. Furthermore, the shield can apparently return to Steve in a smooth arc when thrown without needing to be ricocheted and with enough force to knock a man down in the return path.
